Dubai Finds: A Design Directory

95% of our job is not glamorous - long desk hours, endless traffic, grimy site visits, casual sexism - but once in a blue moon we get to be the ritzy glitzy people you think we are. Last week we got flown to Dubai (yes, you read that right) to buy accessories for a client. 

Ask us why this was the perfect opportunity..
(a) Love Dubai
(b) Love Shopping
(c) All of the above

Here is a list of all the stores we visited and our favourite products from them.
